Military Space Cloud Architecture (MILSCA) will be able to store more than 100 Terabytes of data generated on Earth and in space on board each constellation satellite with a processing power exceeding 250 TFLOPS (250,000 billion operations per second).
WIN-T Increment 2 gets FRP approval
The US Army's Warfighter Information Network –Tactical (WIN-T) Increment 2 has received approval for full-rate production (FRP). The approval was announced on 8 June by General Dynamics, which designed and built the system.
The WIN-T Increment 2 system enables commanders and soldiers to communicate and share intelligence and information while on patrol, providing connectivity similar to a stationary command post.
The army was authorised to proceed to FRP by the US Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics. The system will be fielded by all army units projected receive the system through 2028.
Chris Marzilli, president, General Dynamics Mission Systems, said: 'This is an important milestone and we'll continue to support the army as it fields this vital mission command and communications system throughout its global force.'
